The Best Indie Groups In recent memory

Indie rock has evolved into among the most difficult genres on world to define. Questions and leading label association did groups that cavorted against the majors disqualify themselves eternally and additionally enter the ring–are there actually sell out points?

These discussions and lots of others, (such as my present favorite, what’s the line between folk and indie rock, but this is for another piece) are fringing themselves into more complicated and tinier questions, even while looking over through this. Here we may not hold the secret to unlocking the puzzles of the universe that is indie, but we’ve chosen what our 10 most powerful groups on the indie rock scene. In the event of those choices, groups were seen for their present time for his or her contribution, in addition to the way in which future generations were infiltrated by their sound. Groups are not disqualified for signing using the majors (Hello–Sonic Youth did it men), but specific degrees (read: The Beatles) were taken into account.

Is 2015 the year we cease utilizing the prefix post plus a classic genre name to describe matters that are new?

Phantom Planet( obviously I am biased)

Artic Monkeys

The Killers

Two Door Cinema Club


Arcade Fire

Modest Mouse

Musical Ring

Most men would be averse to getting a mens ring on their right hand, while there is also nother, smaller group of guys will put on a class ring, a family seal a loyal ring significance, or a Masonic symbol, maybe, or there is someone like our sort who would get a ring customides with what represents us, music. Thats what happened today. I got a custom made ring delivered from a company I found on the internet. My first love my wife said there is no way I can put a musical note on the outside of my wedding ring like I wanted to start with. Made things really hard for me.

Started researching on the internet. Found all sorts- trumpet ring, bassinet ring, and what not- but nothing really manly they were more of the feminine sort or overly loud. Since I work with instruments often drums and guitars, I tend to find I wear stuff off quickly. I used to have a corded leather bracelet which came in the middle of my gigs and snapped my chords once. That was the end of it. To be honest it was really difficult to find something that I liked. I ended up finding one reasonably priced ring at Titanium-buzz that  I liked but they could only do it in Titanium or Cobalt Chrome. I was really after a tungsten one as my best pal Brian has a tungsten ring and he absolutely loves it. I asked him where he got it from and he recommended me to this company in New Zealand of all places that makes custom made mens rings to order.

I contacted them and told them of my situation. The staff were very friendly and Matt helped me find a nice simple yet solid ring, and suggested I personalise it on the inside so the messaging is subtle, still lets me hold whats close near yet doesnt look obsene or absurd like what I wanted to prevent. The suggestion was awesome and we ended up choosing a dont that looked pretty amazing and very much a rock themed font. The actual ring itself arrived in 2 weeks by Fedex which I was totally surprised considering this was to be a custom make. The messaging on the inside reads Phantom Planet and I believe the scrip they used was called Exodus or something that gives it a nice Indie Rock kinda feel to the whole ring. I am totally stoked and proud to call it my wedding ring and would recommend all you guys and gals looking for tungsten rings to try them out. The great part abot it is its just a plain solid heaving man ring on the outside.  If I could change something that would be to have the messaging slightly smaller on the inside so I can fit my wife to bes name as well on the inside. Well perhaps as this is what she suggested. 😉
